Monday Moment – Open


Last fall was a vulnerable time in my life. I was transitioning into starting my business and managing some challenging feelings on the personal front. There were times that I would suddenly find myself crying and I hardly knew why! I wondered what was wrong with me, why I couldn’t just get a grip. And then I realized – in this time of easy tears, I had also experienced high joy and amazing creativity. Nothing was wrong with me – I was just learning to live open to emotion. Pain might be more apparent, but so are wonder, love, inspiration, laughter, and connection.

So now I seek to live an open life. To delve into vulnerability and feel everything more deeply. To flow with what hurts and also what brings joy.

Take a moment this Monday and open yourself to feel everything you’re feeling. Create a safe space, step into the flow, and let it all move through you. What do you feel?
